Coravin

Archery Summit

Premier Cuvée Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2011

Tried via coravin first and it was very quiet. I was hoping it would blossom and boy did it.Heavy cherry nose, red fruit and light bit of spice on the palate. Lovely finish with a bit of dryness I didn't expect. Loved it! — 4 days ago

Château Lafon-Rochet

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

so, this was rated on a curve. stored in a fridge in another city. fridge died in summer and it was weeks before i found it. it was baked. and then it was weirdly ok. just used it to explain to @captain henrik how get wine out of a bottle with a coravin (merry xmas, cap'n!) expecting it to be destroyed. lo and behold. second wine from that lot which wasn't ruined. the OTHER, miraculously, was the bernaudeau "sans souffre" which I'll never understand why it was ok. maybe there are wine elves sticking ice in the dead fridge until I found it.... god jul!! — 22 days ago

Les Preuses Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2010

I rated this a straight 10 3 years ago, and after accessing it via Coravin twice, I am pleased to say it's in perfect shape. Right where I would want it to be, and I'll hold the second bottle until 2020! — 25 days ago

H.B. Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

This was difficult, the 2nd day was way better than the first day using Coravin.

Would need to retry this.

Domaine du Pegau

Cuvée Réserve Châteauneuf-du-Pape White Rhone Blend

3L bottle drinking perfectly right now, and though '08 was not an easy year , this chateauneuf du pape cuvée réservée is clearly a winner. jams with old world silks. Thankful for my new coravin to taste this with my son, again and again. Drinking perfectly now. No need to wait — 3 days ago

"Côte Bouguerots" Bougros Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2000

During July 2014 a good friend received a Coravin as a gift. Called me over and asked what 6 bottles did I think should be tested. The cynical SOB that I am had my eyes heading straight to this bottle. Needless to say I was surprised when this tested "good". Fast forward to today and I am happy to say my cynicism proved wrong again. A beautiful nose of ocean spray and shells with hints of spearmint like scents. More round than sharp with flavors of sea water and green apples that lingered very long. Got a little fat after 90 minutes. — a month ago

Auction Napa Valley Special Cuvée Red Blend

I had 2 glasses on Xmas day using my new coravin and just had the rest this evening. I believe this is one notch better than opus 2012

Domaine Michel Lafarge

Les Aigrots Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2005

This bottle is good 😊 Coravin sample the last one was corked. Burgs are rough they can be such a risk. Dark berries, chalky and still plenty of tannins left alas limited complexity i will revisit this in 10 days or so. Days later the bottle was opened and it really showed well and had more cherry 🍒 notes. — a month ago

Lineage

Livermore Valley Red Bordeaux Blend 2013

Greg Ballington
9.3

Another coravin sample to check in quickly. Dark and deep ruby red. Coats your teeth. Very tight on the nose, this will need at least a couple hours to open up. Just a few notes of iron, flowers and cherries. Heavy tannins (8.5/10) and full bodied. Tons of potential, would like to taste this over half a day and see where it goes. Red cherries and minerality on the palate. A little bit of spices, herbs, savory and black cherries or raspberries. Keeps gaining complexity with air. Very long and dry finish. Easily drink for two decades. 93+

Even from this short taste, highly recommend both of these Lineage vintages.
